Anyone rent phototherapy machine at home for baby's jaundice? Is it less effective than doing the therapy at home compared to in the hospital?

Most importantly, baby is in comfort at home and mummy can nurse as and when demanded. I strongly believe that love and comfort can aid recovery greatly! :)

My cousin rented the phototherapy machine home. It has the same effect, except that you have to be ensure that baby is placed in the machine for the required number of hours (usually for the whole day).

She delivered at Parkway East, think she rented it from the hospital if I'm not wrong.

Which company she rented from and how much is the cost?
